Good news for BG; there were a few people here who said "I'll believe it when I see it". Do we know how many 777s BG will be getting from SQ?

I think this is the third fleet (after the DC10s and A310s) that BG has acquired from SQ.

Let's hope the 777s mark a new phase in BG's development ... can't wait to see them at LHR!

I have no faith at all in BG maintaining these machines as well as SQ. Presumably all the interiors will be ripped out along with the IFE?

I believe UA and BA have the oldest 777s.



If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

No, I think this is 'SQA; this one (for BG) was delivered in 1998. Here's the details of the SQ 777 fleet.

All of these are -ER aircraft, although some are MTOW limited for use on shorter flights.

I assume this ex-SQ aircraft is in addition to the 4 773ERs ordered by BG early last year, with purchase rights for 4 more 773ERs. I'm not sure when the first of those is due for delivery.

3 of their current 4 DC10s are ex SQ birds also, It seems that BG prefer to buy from SQ as they are well maintained.
New livery is a must I would say.

Wish them all the best!

Actually, it's MM that gets the 772. MM will in turn lease it to BG on a 12M ACMI & 36M DRY. Handover is expected to be before X'mas.

CX has the oldest 777 of all, the original 777-200 prototype that made the first flight in 1994. After 6 years with Boeing it was refurbished (and re-engined, from P&W to R-R) and sold to CX in 2000.

Are the 777's replacements for the DC-10's or are these going to complement the fleet of existing aircraft?
I flew on S2-ACQ two weeks ago, and I noted one of the four DC-10's is stripped for parts in DAC. The other three were still active.

Lucky you!  Smile Thanks for updating us. Can we expect a trip report? I doubt BG will be keeping their D10s once the 772s are delivered; makes me nostalgic for my trip last year and want to fly them one last time.

Will try to post one, but it won't be before the Christmas break. It was a great flight and awesome crew. There are two photos in the upload queue, hope the screeners will accept them. A big thank you also for your help & advice which made that flight possible  highfive

Looks like they are a stopgap for the 77W they (might) get.
Btw MM is a rather unknown airline code. I think in such case we should use the full name: Euroatlantic Airways.

That's great Loran. I'm just glad you managed to get aboard - I know you've been trying for a long time. I will look out for your pics and TR!  Smile
